Mr. Dhorje Dandul Gurung
Chair, Executive Committee
Mr. Gurung was born in Thonche, a small village in the district of Manang, Nepal. He attended and completed higher secondary education from the Central School for Tibetans in Mussorie, India. He was one of the few children in his village at the time to attend a school in India. Unfortunately, he was unable to continue with his further education due to the collapse of his father’s trade business with Tibetan merchants after the occupation of Tibet by China in 1959. That is when he began a professional career, working as an accountant and supervisor for Buddha Construction Company in Nepal.
It is in the field of Social Work, however, where he finds himself most dedicated, and where he feels truly satisfied. He has been involved in several projects and initiatives, most of which focus on the district of Manang. Mr. Gurung is the Chair for the Kathmandu-Manang District Service Center. He currently serves as the Treasurer for the Manang Development Society. He is the Coordinator for the Lhamjung-Manang District Road Development Society.
